Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has expressed concern over Sergio Aguero’s injury against Burnley after the Club’s record scorer limped off before half-time in the match they pummeled Burnley 5-0 at the Etihad stadium.
This means that Argentina will be on the sideline for some time. This is a huge loss or City that would have loved to have the hitman for their remaining campaign, at least. The last action for Aguero before limping off the pitch was to win a penalty after he was challenged in the box by Ben Mee – the challenge which stopped him from continuing any further.
Speaking with the club media, the gaffer said, “It doesn’t look good,” because it has to do with his knee.
“We will see tomorrow and will see what he has. He felt something in his knee, and he will struggle in the last month, but we will see. The doctor said tomorrow we would know more, but it doesn’t look good at this moment.”
Few minutes after the kick-off of the game, a banner on an aircraft with an inscription: “White Lives Matter” was seen above Etihad Stadium, which drew condemnation from several quarters.
Guardiola pleased with Foden’s performance
The coach is, on the other hand, pleased with the way his side went about recording a second straight win since the restart. City has now scored eight unreplied goals in two games. Their victory has delayed Liverpool’s title-winning party for another game.
The former Bayern coach also expressed delight with the performance of Phil Foden, who won the Man of the Match award after scoring twice and creating two assists during the emphatic win. He described the performance of his team as a good, solid one, especially at the beginning.
“I’m happy with him and if he feels it’s his best performance – perfect. I said many times; he’s never played bad. Especially for his behaviour and attitude.
“On the pitch, training, he loves to play football. He plays every time with us since he was promoted to be the senior squad and has played a high level. “We cannot forget he is just 20 years old. He will be a decisive player for this club. “
David Silva, who will be leaving City in the summer, was dictating the game in the middle of the pack, and the Spaniard scored his 75th goal for the Club and played a huge part in Foden’s second goal.
Guardiola, who lauded the effort of fellow countryman, promised that he would be given a legend’s farewell when the fans are allowed back to the stadium.
